Stranger Things 4

May 30th, 2022 Stranger Things 4 is a masterpiece. It is one of the best-ever examples of genre storytelling, and how it can explore complex emotional and psychological ideas that traditional storytelling just can’t. It’s both affirming and inspirational, for a person like me. I will absolutely spoil nothing here, but I do want toContinue reading “Stranger Things 4”

Free Comic Book Day 2022

May 7th, 2022 It’s Free Comic Book Day, an event that celebrates an art form that has had not only a substantial impact on culture and society, but has a deeply personal connection with the people who love it.

Star Wars Day 2022

May 4th, 2022 Happy Star Wars Day. I have written at length about my love for that galaxy far, far away several times (even recently, as I was going through my first viewing of the Clone Wars television series), so I’ll keep it light (side) today. Cold World is a love letter to many things.Continue reading “Star Wars Day 2022”

Fake’s Not Real

April 9th, 2022 As disclaimers go, this is a weird one: representation matters. I believe that to my core. I want to make that clear before I start. So what kind of something am I starting? I guess we’ll see. When we’re kids, we are generally taught the difference between real and fake. The newsContinue reading “Fake’s Not Real”

[Clone] War & [Clone] Peace

March 24th, 2022 I freaking love Star Wars. Always have. There is, to me, no such thing as bad Star Wars. I’m not of the original generation of fans (because they are old and I so clearly am not), so it always existed in a peripheral way to me until the Special Editions were releasedContinue reading “[Clone] War & [Clone] Peace”

Look Who I Ran Into!

March 14th, 2022 I just ran into my buddy, Bay, and he says hi! He’s wondering, too, if you have any chips. He also can’t believe we’ve already raised 54% of Fire & Ice — almost $1,100 — to tell his story. He actually got teary-eyed as I told him how excited people are toContinue reading “Look Who I Ran Into!”

Fire & Ice Is a Renewable Resource!

PLUS: my books can not only take you to new locations, but they can transport you through time! How’s that for fuel efficient? DID YOU ALSO KNOW? OneContinue reading “Fire & Ice Is a Renewable Resource!”
